Gorgeous Views. Nice little walking track. Look out for goannas in the bush. But don't get too close. Lots of parking but ALWAYS busy and hard to find space. Nice drive out there. Take binoculars and camera

Hi, My husband and I will be staying in SydneyCBD and want to take public transport to Ku-ring-gai Natl Park, Would you please tell us what bus or train numbers to ride and what stop to get off at. Is it best to see the Kalkari Discovery Centre ? What entrance station is best? Thanks so much...
